Default 89 Ranger plastic fuel tank

Just wanted to share this, may help someone. 1989 Ranger, had the fuel tank dropped, new Fuel pump installed. Afterwards, had a fuel smell, and leak when full. Mechanic dropped the tank again, found a crack along the top. No plastic tank to be found, he used a compound called Marine-Tex [not certain if this is correct spelling] to repair the tank. So far so good, thought maybe someone here may be looking for same solution to this problem.

I have run into this same issue. I have a 1989 Ranger 2.3l with said plastic tank. I wanted to ask if you were still leak free after having the tank repaired with Marine-Tex ( as I need to go that same route.
